La Fille Mal Gardee

Pennsylvania Ballet

240 S. Broad Street Philadelphia PA 19102
  • Thursday June 2nd 2011 at 12:00am to Saturday June 11th 2011 at 12:00am

A delightful romantic comedy! La Fille mal gardee (loosely translated as "The Wayward Daughter") is Sir Frederick Ashton's touching tale of two determined lovers and their quest to marry. Lise, the young daughter of a wealthy farmer, wishes to marry Colas, a handsome, young farm worker, but her mother, Mother Simone (who, in the tradition of English theater, is played by a man) disapproves. Instead, she arranges for Lise to marry Alain, the eccentric, simpleton son of a wealthy vintner. Lise and Colas pursue each other in secret until Mother Simone discovers them and is persuaded to let them wed. Set along a backdrop of simple country life, this uplifting ballet is brimming with charming characters (including dancing hens!), hilarious antics, and memorable dances. La Fille mal gardee illuminates the spirit of true love.
